Default VW Multi Van available in Eroupe

Not that I am shopping for a new campervan to replace the one we sold recently....But I have heard that the micro-bus is coming back...

While looking at what is available in Europe, I stumbeled on a very interesting button..Had to do some French translation but....they make a version with 4 motion and a rear locker, how cool would that be...

I've always thought the Syncro (and the 1980's Toyota 4x4 vans) were pretty sweet. In fact, the last time I was at HRO, there was a minty Syncro parked out front that had me thinking about the road trip possibilities, especially now that we have a kid in tow.

Why did you sell your other one Chris?

I knew Dave would come up big on the research end....Those aint no vineyard shots...

The multi-van is fugly....It would be cool to get a new micro bus with 4 motion and locker for the Maze...

My dad had a 64 bug he would take hunting. They would pull out the front seat and his buddy would sit in the back so they had room for their gear on the floorboard. If they got a deer they would put it in the front trunk

More VW stories.....

In high school, a friend had a 70ish Karman Ghia that we would use for our snow removal service. We'd pull the front seat so we could fit a snow blower in the car. It was amazing what that car could do in deep snow.
